Imagine two buildings, both of them twelve storeys tall- but while one is completely above ground, the other has six of its storeys beneath the ground. That's the Xbox Series X and PS5- they're both equal, but in very different ways. If its pure, raw power in traditional terms that you want to consider, then sure- Xbox Series X does have the edge.

There’s no way he can be serious with this analysis.

The XSX's velocity architecture does not help it claw back some of the SSD performance. The only unique feature I've seen it having is a hardware filter that helps with sampler feedback streaming, but even Microsoft says it only may help reduce pop-in at page boundaries. The raw PS5 SSD speed advantage should eliminate pop-in, so in practice that wouldn't be an advantage.

Console Advantage Cheat Sheet
  • XSX: Slight resolution advantage
  • PS5: Streamed asset quality(textures, geometry, audio...), controller haptics, 3D audio

Subbed for the comedy of watching dipshits fight to rage and tears over which corporation (that doesn't care about them) delivered the slightly more powerful box.
